Shut Off Water Valves Before Ringing Emergency Plumbers

February 10th, 2010

Emergency plumbing services will be able to advise you that the plumbing system in a home or place of business is always going to be split into two separate sections.   One of these will be in charge of supplying fresh water straight into the building and the other allows waster water to pass out of the building.

In order for the supply of your fresh water to be supplied to your home in such a way that it will reach all necessary areas such as the upstairs bathroom and all other areas required which may be a distance from the point of entry, it will be pressurised.

It is so important that emergency plumbers in London will agree that you should know exactly where your water valve is located in case of an emergency. The location of your water meter will be a good indication of where your water valve will be in most cases it will be fixed nearby.

Whenever you find yourself with a burst water pipe and you need to ring emergency plumbers in London, one of the most important and essential actions you should take before you even pick up the phone is to shut off your water to avoid your home from flooding further and making the situation worse. However, should this action not be undertaken amidst the panic, emergency flood repairs are also available.
